Ok covering the basics here. Do you have gas in the tank? Don't go by what the gas gauge says. If you have gas in the tank is it getting to the engine? Turn off everything in the car, radio, blower motor ect. Turn the ignition to the on/run position not the crank (all the way forward) position. Listen for the fuel pump. It will be a low whine from the rear of the car. If you don't hear it check the fuse box under the hood and see if the relay/fuse blown or bad. If the fuse/relay is ok then it's probably a bad fuel pump and needs to be replaced.

Same problem, not fuel pump, not crank sensor, nit cam sensor, not throttle body or throttle positioning sensor. I've exhausted nearly all options. It doesn't fire except for maybe 1 out of 20 cranks. I'm beat.

Did you fix it yet ? Psims92
